Columbia made the Men's Titan Peak Shorts with serious hikers, climbers, and adventurers in mind. Crafted from modern Omni-Shield fabric with bonded seams and four-way stretch technology, these shorts effortlessly keep up with any rigorous outdoor activity and feel incredibly comfortable. Even when you hike under the blazing summer sun, their Omni-Shade UPF-rated 50 protection shields you from harmful rays while the integrated and removable belt holds the shorts in place. A gusseted crotch and partial elastic waist allow freedom to move, and two hand zip pockets and security zip pocket let you stash some snacks and sunscreen away safely.

Solid Hiking Shorts

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 34

I just got the Columbia Titan Peak Hiking Shorts and so far I like them. The 4-way stretch is great, and I also like the removable belt option. Zippered hand pockets are great - no need to worry about stuff accidentally bouncing out. Fit is true to size for me.

Poor Fit and Construction

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 34x10

I purchased these shorts with the Mountain Hardware Chockstone Midweight Active Shorts and the two are not even comparable.

The Colombia shorts fit okay, but thankfully I'm fairly thin, because they didn't leave much room in the butt. I wore them around the house for a bit after receiving my package just to try them out before I threw them in the wash. When they came out, the hem at the bottom of one of the legs has already come out and ~2 inches is un-sewn.

While I'm sure I'll still wear them, I'm pretty disappointed in Colombia's quality, and I definitely wouldn't recommend them to anyone else.
